A growing number of people are interested in experiencing the beneficial effects of CBD. Because this is an expanding trend, there are many new products on the market. Careful consumers often have many questions about CBD before they give it a try. Finding the right dose is one of the most common concerns.
Finding the Right Dose of CBD
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a cannabis oil that is extracted from hemp. Hemp is related to other cannabis plants like marijuana. However, this plant has much lower levels of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the chemical that creates the stoned feeling of marijuana. In the United States, CBD oil has to have a THC level lower than 0.03% in order to be sold legally.
What are the current dosing guidelines for CBD?
Although it is completely legal to buy CBD oil, the research on this substance is still in its preliminary stages. There is a great deal of anecdotal evidence concerning the benefits of the oil, but there is not currently a recommended dosage or daily allowance.
General Advice about CBD Dosage
As we share our own stories and hear from our customers, it is clear that the right dose of CBD is unique to the individual. There are a number of factors that can affect the amount of CBD you need each day, the number of doses you take in a day and the best concentration for your body.
Your personal genetics and biochemistry will affect how you experience CBD. Some of our customers can feel the effects of the oil in a few minutes after a dose. Some people need to take daily doses for a week before they experience a difference.
Our general advice is to start low and slow. If you have never worked with CBD before, take a low dose once a day. Many of our customers find it helpful to take a dose the first thing in the morning. As you discover how CBD affects your body, you may want to alter the dose, using a stronger concentration or adding a second or third dose to your daily intake.
Personal Factors that Can Affect CBD Dosage Needs
There are a number of things about your unique body to consider when seeking the right CBD dosage. Understanding these factors can help you make an informed decision.
In general, the larger your body, the higher the dose you will need to see the benefits of the oil. If you are a larger person, you may want to start with a mid-range concentration like our Super Good Vibes CBD oil.
Someone with low body fat may need to take multiple doses to experience the effects of the substance throughout the day.
Timing the Dose
Some of our customers can take a single dose of CBD in the morning and feel the effects all day long. Other people may find it helpful to take several smaller doses throughout the day. There may also be moments that require an extra dose. For example, some athletes will take a dose a few minutes before a challenging workout.
Product Quality and Strength
The quality of your CBD product can change its effectiveness. Because CBD is plant-based, there can be significant differences in quality and purity depending on the grower. We test every batch of our CBD oil in-house and also through a third-party laboratory. When our customers buy CBD oil, we want them to have a product that will give them reliable results.
The concentration of CBD in the product is an important consideration in determining the proper dose. Every CBD product should be clearly labeled so you know how much of the substance you are taking in. Our three main oil products have very different doses.
Good Vibes: Each serving of our Good Vibes oil has 8.33mg of CBD. We think this is a decent concentration for most people who are trying CBD for the first time. People who want a lower extra dose may also want to keep this product handy.
Super Good Vibes: At 33.5mg per dose, Super Good Vibes provides a moderate dose. 2 to 3 doses throughout the day will give you a sustained benefit.
Mega Good Vibes: This is our strongest oil at 83.33mg per dose. A single dose of this product may be all you need for the day.
At SabaiDee, we are dedicated to providing quality CBD products that promote the happiness of our customers.
